    About the speaker, Kim Fredrich

    Kim helps businesses grow sales revenues by helping ‘non-sales’ staff get comfortable with sales and selling. Her one-on-one sales training focuses on building relationships and having conversations with purpose. She has conducted workshops for Howard University’s In3 Incubator, Hera Hub and the Maryland Women’s Business Center in addition to her private clients.

    Kim has also presented at The Power Conference, NAWBO, the Freelance Union and the Women in Business Leadership Council. Her enthusiasm about sales has proven to be infectious!

    Who knew Kim’s first job at McDonald's would be the beginning of a customer focused sales career? She’s dabbled in marketing too, but always come back to sales.

    Her own sales training began nearly 20 years ago with a Huthwaite consultant in the UK, was polished off by Xerox in the US, and has been honed working with select clients in B2B, B2C and non-profit arenas in three different countries.
